Fighting Parkinson’s, and let’s eat, part 2

In my previous blog post, I discussed placing your order for what you want (eating and recovery) and having the patience to wait to receive exactly what you want at the time it is supposed to be served to you. That blog post prompted two main questions this week, and inspired today’s blog post.

In January of 2010, I switched to a vegetarian diet. Also, I eliminated white sugar and flour, and because dairy created too much phlegm for me, I eliminated dairy as well. After my recovery, I introduced dairy back into my diet.

In July of 2017, Sally and I eliminated dairy and eggs, and we became vegan, or plant-based eaters.

The questions:
1. Where do you get your protein?
2. How can you maintain strength on a vegan diet?

My answers:
1. Here is where we get our protein:

2. Here is a trailer to the movie The Game Changers (Full Movie on Netflix):

I am hopeful that you can see that there are plenty of amazingly good and healthy foods with plenty of protein to fulfill every dietary need. Plus, vegetarian and vegan food assimilate easily into the body (less energy to digest equates to more energy for strength and healing), and they are high in fiber, so they assist with constipation issues.

Okay everybody, let’s eat!!! Here’s what cooking at my house:

You are worth it!!!

All my best,

Howard

    I’ve been a Pescetarian for over two years now and do not miss meat one bit.
    Combined with the recipe, my bloodwork has been exceptional across the board. To heal internally (Body) helps tremendously with the overall recovery process.

    It is amazing how much better I feel eating a plant based diet. It helps not only physically but mentally. Less brain fog. Game Changers is worth the watch.

    Thanks Howard!

    I had never tried kimchi, falafels and lentil cottage pie before doing the Recipe and trying to eat healthier, chiefly for the sake of my bowels. I generally think of vegetarian dishes as monotonous or unappetising (has anybody tried jackfruit? Yuk) – clearly not in Sally’s kitchen, where food is an art form as well as a delicious treat. When you say ‘let’ s eat’, Howard, do you mean we’re all invited to your place for supper? LOL. I’m absolutely sold on Sally’s orange scones – I could practically eat the picture.
    Sigh, I’ll just have to content myself with Marks & Spencer’s rather good salads.
    In short, I’m trying to make better food choices to aid my recovery. But with no culinary skills whatsoever, I tend to rely on ready meals. And the thought of giving up dairy … well, I love my yogurts (kefir ones, these days) and milk sloshed over cereals, while a sandwich without cheese ain’t a sandwich in my book. I think the advice about ‘eating a rainbow’ is good to bear in mind. Right, I’m gonna have a banana …

    A big Thank You to you and Sally for posting this very helpful information. I have been searching for more information about plant based protein as I continue to loose weight with dyskinesia. And I don’t want to add foods that cause inflammation to my body. Not only did you provide the “what” but also the “how to prepare”, which is fantastic!

    Thanks so much!

    Hi Howard and the warrior team, “The Game Changers” is next on my movies to watch. I will try Sally’s soup since it makes a lot of left overs and I can freeze it. I have been eating vegetarian for a while but I think I am missing some protein so I will look up the link you sent. I am struggling with sugar but dairy is mostly out and I have been eating eggs this week which I have not for a long time. Thank you Howard for all the information to keep us on track. Many blessings.
